Fire Burn Babylon

Format

Summary
Fire Burn Babylon follows three Rastafarian friends who abandon their spiritual retreat in the foothills of Montserrat and resettle in London after a volcanic eruption destroys their island home. Lyndon, I-Shaka and Elroy reinvent themselves as rude-boy rappers and small-time hustlers on the East End nightclub circuit. Their beliefs transform as they rediscover new ways of living in London, which they previously believed was their spiritual nemesis, "Babylon". Will they fall for the thrills of Babylon or recommit to their Rastafarian ideals? The birth of their children by non-Rastafarian women introduces new values in their lives: when a child must be brought up between these two worlds there will be difficult choices to be made. Fire Burn Babylon is told through the eyes of the men themselves, the women who love them and the elders who guide them.
